The Gasometer (Closed)

The Gasometer - Gas Vegan Nachos - $20

*The Gasomoter is currently closed until further notice.

I'm sure that many of you need no introduction to The Gasometer Hotel, a friendly pub in 
Collingwood with an extensive vegan / vegan optional (VGO) menu.

For those of you that know the Gasometer, but haven't eaten there in a little while, you'll be happy to hear that a new addition to the menu, 'Gas Vegan Nachos' ($20), are incredible. The Gasometer have had vegan nachos on their menu in the past and we haven't cared for them - but this version is a winner. The nacho chips are homemade and reminiscent of delicious crispy roti bread in chip form. The topping is a seitan and mixed bean chilli with vegan feta (incredible), sour cream, guacamole and salsa. These nachos are really worth trying. 

Other favourites on the menu are the Buffalo Tofu Strips ($12 GFO) which are deliciously smokey and juicy and come with vegan ranch dipping sauce. The Gasometer is well known for their near-perfect hot chips, which makes the Poutine ($12 VGO) another popular choice; and let's face it - who doesn't love chips covered in cheesy sauce and rich brown gravy!? The Spanish Mushrooms ($12 GFO VGO) are also highly recommended - they come in a smoked paprika and garlic cream sauce, finished with sweet Spanish sherry.  

There are plenty of other vegan mains (and desserts!) to choose from including Vegan Chicken & Waffles ($20), Vegan BBQ Ribs ($18), Arepas with Red Chilli Seitan & Salsa ($20) and the Southern Fried Chicken Burger ($18) to name a few. Basically, vegans are extremely well catered for and you should get yourself down there!

  1. Thanks for the heads up on the nachos! They sound fantastic and I'll definitely give them a try on my next visit. The buffalo tofu strips are one of our faves and we have also enjoyed the poutine recently. I need to try the Spanish mushrooms one day too, they look delish!

  2. Hey Mel, yes - you've got to try the nachos! Would love to hear if you agree with us. The Spanish mushrooms are great, the recipe changed a bit this year and they got better! The stuffed olives are worth a try too if you haven't had them.
